Hi Guys! As we reach closer to the start of 2016 I’m sure many of us (me included) are thinking about New Years resolutions; a common one being – taking better care of your skin. I’ve discovered something that can help you on your way for when your skin…misbehaves. Recently I was convinced to buy the Juice Beauty Green Apple peel by Laura from Laura’s Natural Life and I have become obsessed. It’s like a milder natural chemical peel and it has quickly become part of my weekly skincare routine.
Just over a month ago, right before my friend Lizon’s birthday dinner, my skin decided to act up so badly. I could tell it was probably congested and clogged, I had a lot of tiny bumps on my forehead – this is something I struggle with. It’s not necessarily acne or break outs but just lots of tiny bumps and it doesn’t sound major but it just means my skin doesn’t look nice and smooth and in certain lights they will be really obvious. But I’ve now found a quick and easy way to get rid of congested angry skin.
I purchased the the Green Apple Peel in Sensitive. I wasn’t too sure how strong the Full Strength version would be so if anyone has tried that out and it’s not too harsh on your skin please let me know! From my first time using this mask, the next morning I saw instant results. My skin was smooth and free of any horrid bumps or texture. It was amazing. I apply it to my skin and neck with clean hands after cleansing my face at night and leave it on for about 10 minutes. For the first minute or so I did notice a tingling sensation but this is completely normal.
On the packaging it says that it has alpha hydroxy acids which exfoliates and refines to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and lightens discolouration. It is definitely an exfoliating mask and it’s really similar to chemical peels. I have noticed my skin feeling firmer and smoother after using this mask. It usually calms down any areas that look like they will start to break out or give me some trouble which is not surprising because one of the ingredients is Organic Lemon Juice which I mentioned that I use before in My 7 Natural Blemish Busting Solutions post. If I know I’m going out I usually like to use this the night before to ensure my face is prepped for the following day.
This retails for £37 for 60ml of product. I got this during the Black Friday sales at Naturismo so I got 15% off; I’ve mentioned this before but Naturusimo have discount codes very frequently so it is definitely worth signing up to their newsletter. I can imagine that this jar will last quite a long time because you don’t use very much for one single use. If you are not sure Naturisimo also sell sample sizes which you can purchase to try out and see how it works for you before committing to the full splurge. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that deals with any issues with texture or angry skin.
Until next time!
